Member Since
January 2018

Having been raised as an East Coast girl in Truro, Nova Scotia, Stephanie Matthews has spent time living in Newfoundland, Oklahoma, and Italy. She has currently settled in Ontario working for a non-profit organization and writing in her spare time.

An ending that reminded me a bit of Poe, or even a hail back to Greek tragedy, "A Watched Pot" is a well written short story that invites you to join a couple no longer in love for an innocuous event: a dinner party. Very little about it turns out to ...more
